Experiment Shows People Exposed To East German Socialism Cheat More

Justpin Re:Breaking news (613 comments)

Sure, but similarly calling something capitalist doesn't mean it is capitalist either. The western world is not even remotely capitalist even though it pretends it is. I wouldn't call bail outs capitalist or subsidies like the F35 program capitalist.

IIRC Government spending as a % of GDP in East Germany never went past 35%, in the UK government spending as a % of GDP went well over 50% a few years ago, its 15% in China and we have the gall to call them commies.

Except free markets are like true communism a concept which cannot exist, what we call free markets are anything but, cartels are normal, bribes, I mean lobbying for preferential treatment is normal. Thats not a free market at all.

And what shred of humanity is that? if you look back through history most wars and interventions are fought for profits. Nothing else, dressing it up for humanitarian reasons does not change the fact that wars are fought for profits. Libya for example 'humanitarian action' 'i.e. regime change'

Sigh you do realise it is 32C at this latitude right? bodies rot, and there are wild animals in this part of the world. I bloody well saw wolves in the Urals not far from the roads. So they move the bodies, oh they are evil, they don't move the bodies bodies rot or get eaten or decay rather quickly (you ever seen how fast dead things rot?) oh they are so disrespectful not moving the bodies.

The UK government has been caught editing wikipedia many times, around 2008/9 when MPs were caught fiddling their expenses a large number of edits on wikipedia occurred to their crimes and disseminate false information. If the UK government does it..

What like Iran flight 655? where the US government obfuscated and lied about it for years making fake claims that it was heading right for them. Funny enough Regan called the shoot down of Korean flight a crime against humanity. 4 years later the USS Vincennes shoots down Iran flight 655 and it was a regrettable incident. Double standard much?

Fascist aggressive country who exactly are you talking about? NATO aggressively invaded a couple of Middle Eastern countries quite recently on a false pretext. We bombed several others as well and affected regime change for OUR PROFITS. While two wrongs don't make a right Pot Kettle black much?

What you mean the conspiracy about associating Saddam with 911 and invading under a false pretext of WMD, this of course did not happen. Oh wait it did! Similarly the chemical weapons attack in Syria which on later analysis was found to be fired from a rebel controlled area, this of course did not happen!

Giant Crater Appears In Northern Siberia

Justpin Re:Please dont toss a match in (122 comments)

How many times has that pistol been used? Also do you have a high speed camera for a dramatic slow motion shot of running away from the fireball, or a cool pair of sunglasses so you can walk away from the huge fireball? heh

Derweze they found large gas deposits, a crane collapsed on-site and caused a rush of natural gas to the surface. USSR scientists thought it was best to burn it to reduce the environmental impact. That was in 1971, it is still burning.

Predicting a Future Free of Dollar Bills

Justpin Re:666 (753 comments)

Not at all, I am just saying don't keep all your eggs in one basket. I am not stating you should buy this and that (commonly gold/silver/guns/ammo/food) but merely to diversify so that if it does come to a bad situation then you're not the guy at the bottom. Keeping $100-$300 of cash at home it is still cash and a physical representation of electronic money, so while you retain some risks and even gain some new ones (robbery for instance). You reduce your risk in other areas should a Cyprus event occur.
BTW I would happily note that Cyprus was an experiment by the EU to see how people would react, European states after seeing what happened started quietly writing in Cyprus style bail in agreements. Additionally a whole year before a Cypriot had concerns, a lot of people shouted at him (as much as you can online) about how it will never happen, it can never happen, except it did happen.

Predicting a Future Free of Dollar Bills

Justpin Re:Why? (753 comments)

Yes it can, if those $20s are debased by money printing, the British tried this in the war of independence by making funny money. The US is printing an obscene amount of money right now which is why the price of gas and food is creeping ever higher.

Justpin Re:666 (753 comments)

15th of March 2013 Cyprus. Overnight the banks were frozen, all electronic transactions ceased, the banks were closed, ATMs suddenly did not work (they were turned back on with severely restricted withdrawal limits later). There four kinds of people The cashless Those who kept cash outside the system. Those with other things like gold/silver/food/petrol. The wolves who travelled into Cyprus to strip the cashless of their assets for fire sale prices. The cashless starved, and had to sell their assets at fire sale prices, because they couldn't get any money, they couldn't use their cards AND they couldn't escape. Those who kept cash out of the system did not starve and could escape. Those who had other things like gold/silver/food/petrol ended up cleaning out the cashless of their assets and picked them clean as they had no choice as they had to buy water and food. Trevor a wolf went out there and started buying cashless peoples' Jewellery for about 5 cents on the Euro. The cashless had no choice but to sell to a wolf or starve.
